Guyanese fraud victims thought they sent money for Donald Trump

Read Time:3 Minute, 45 Second

The document also carried a notice which stated “Every tax or taxes to any Ministry or cooperation here in the United States of America, e.g Central Bank, Ministry of Justice, etc must be paid upfront before funds will be deposited or transferred into the beneficiary designated foreign account”

What was obvious, is the fact that the US does not use the term ‘Ministry of Justice’ or ‘Central Bank’, both of which are legally referred to as the Department of Justice and the Federal Reserve bank, respectively.

Interestingly, the bogus document insinuates that the request for the money is being made personally by US President Donald Trump, urging the victims to pay over the “tax” money quickly before he changes his mind.

Believing that it was indeed President Donald Trump who sent them the request to pay over the tax money, the victims said that they swiftly complied and went to Western Union and wire the money to the person that “President Trump” supposedly told them to send it to.

“How de certificate look, I did believe that is Trump did send me de thing. So me ain’t really had no problem wid sending de the tax”, said one man who handed over a total of US1,000 to the fraud ring.

An old money transfer receipt (seems to be dated since 2006) which the fraudsters used as an inducemet to show potential victims that others had sent monies. The authencity of transfer receipt remains unclear
However, in all instances, each of the victims sent the money to a different name, and different US State, which seems to suggest that the gang is dispensing the fake ID’s used for each transaction, among other things.

Questioned on whether either of them had reported the matter to the police, but the victims lamented that they do not think that there is anything that the police in Guyana can do to track down and apprehend the culprits abroad.

Nonetheless, a media-relations agent at the FBI field office in New York told this publication that Guyanese can report any intelligence information on internet fraud incidents to the FBI through the local US embassy in Georgetown, or preferably via this LINK on the web.

However, while the agency is able to solve a large number of cyber crimes, it does not guarantee that a report would necessarily lead to solving every reported case.
